That's right . . . I'm smack dab in a spurt of highs. Tell me if you do this when you are high:
#1: Play the blame game. "maybe I've been slacking off on my exercise" "I haven't been as careful with what I've been eating" "man, I'm really screwing up"
#2: Decide time will make it better. "well, it's almost that time of month - a few more days and things will settle down" "it's just stress - a few more days and things will settle down" "I know, I'll be diligent about exercise - a few more days . . . you can see where I'm going with this.
#3: Have an ah-ha moment. Yes, it's almost that time of month - but my BS isn't usually thrown so out of whack. Yes, I have been slacking on exercise and eating - but not enough to warrant so many highs. Stress - eeeehhh, I'm not really all that stressed. But, AH-HA, I recently opened a bottle of insulin that had come on vacation as a spare. Could the problem be that it didn't travel well? An hour ago, I threw it out, opened a fresh (and untraveled) bottle of insulin and changed my site.
I still think there are multiple factors at work here, but I'm hoping a better bottle of insulin will help get things moving in the right direction. I've had enough of the see-saw!
